Malta Food Agency, established in 2021, is built around three pillars, which are markets, business development and digitalisation, with the aim of achieving the vision of “leading quality and valuable local food products to different markets”.
Even if still in its inception, it has already attained a number of achievements towards local food producers and society. One of these is the implementation of a holistic reform within the Ta’ Qali Fruit and Vegetables Market, also known as Pitkalija.
As a result, Malta Food Agency’s achievements have been recognised by different local organisations.
These include the National Supporting Business Awards 2022 for the category “Supporting the sustainable transition”, for the transition process achieved through the Pitkalija reform. The award came with a donation of €8,000, which the agency forwarded to the Equal Partners Foundation.
The agency was also awarded the Best Use of Technology in Business Transformation Award for the digital transformation achieved in the aforementioned reform. The eBusiness Awards organised by Tech.mt aim to acknowledge unique and innovative ideas and initiatives in the use of web-based technologies and eBusiness for businesses and society at large.
